I have FINALLY got my graduate badge so many breaks and psychological battles. A big thank you to all of those who have encouraged me along the way. It has helped so much and also reading about other's journeys.. But having been on such a high I now feel really plunged into a low. My body aches unbelievably (I suffer from arthritis but this is something else) and I feel curiously tearful! I had intended to do some running today but after finishing work have no motivation and could hardly budge from the sofa.
I have heard of over-training and am wondering whether that final push to get the badge on top of a weekend of gardening last weekend has just been too much for my (no longer young) body. Can anyone help?
